Anybody else got a pair of these:



I've had a couple pairs over around 3 years and love them, I know quite a few other people with them and some of these people are also into lasers so I thought there might be a link.

If your wondering "WTF ARE THEY?" here is a video from last weekend when I met up with some mates in Cardiff, England:
YouTube - Welsh Bockers and Jurassic Jumpers: Powerbocking

And of course the bails video:
YouTube - Randomness, Stupidity and Bails

So has anybody else got a pair of these or am I the only crazy one?

High tech version of the cartoon style "springs-under-the-shoes", LOL !

Wondering if they can hold my 100 Kg without collapse (i'm 1,90 LOL)

I used to use these (and a more "stable" full foot model) way back when I was in construction (before 1987). Stilts are much faster than a scaffold :wave:

The materials were a bit more primitive (and a lot more stiff), but they've been around a long time.

Peace,

You get different weight springs, so the stiffness varies depending how heavy you are.
Most brands have models upto 120kg, if you want more info shoot me a pm.

Yeah, really sums up the weekend, I'm the guy in the white t-shirt and the grey boardshorts, in the first video i'm the guy in the 2nd and 3rd clip.
